The reason I ask is because I've been told when I issue the verbal warning, "Blue, she has 10 seconds to be back in the box!"
You do just what the rule allows, you hit the batter with a strike. AGAIN, it has nothing to do with 10 seconds
The bat issue in softball is as much about liability, insurance and litigation as it is about competition, inflated egos and softball.
